717 Trading started out from a small stall in a market in Ponggol in 1973, selling only a few baskets of durians and some other fruits a day. Since then, 717 Trading began to diversify its business and have retail outlets islandwide to provide cakes and pastries to customers.
Over the years, I've tried so many durian crepes from different establishments ranging from Goodwood Park to Puteri Mas but I've to say I've never looked back since discovering those from 727 Cakerie.
What sets this apart from the rest is that they don't add too much cream into the durian filling so when you bite into the crepe, it seems like you're sinking your teeth into the real fruit. Perfect for those times when you don't have time to enjoy the real thing!
The shop is nothing to look at but I usually just pop in to takeaway some for the family. Apart from the one time when I bit into a sour one, I have no other complaints about their stuff.
Oh, and do try their durian puffs too!
place is very dirty, no place to be seated, the only seats available obstrucuts the public walking and those seated gets stared at. Dont like the feeling
plus their price is too high, dont waste your time and money on this place. lots of better durina places nearby it
The durian season is ending but it is still not too late to catch something here. Tried the "Mao Shan Wang" which was creamy although abeit darker yellow and more bitter than what I am more accustomed to. Also had the usual D24s which were just as bitter. All in all, great quality durians in a place where you do not get cheated.
I also tried some genetically modified rambutans which had shorter "hair" and in which the aril comes off easily from the seed. Interesting but given that I grew up on the more traditional fruit it just seemed a little too strange for my comfort zone.
One issue to note is that 717 Trading might not be very accessible for one without a car. Service also tends to be rather slow even on a quiet night. While not cheap, prices are generally quite fair. Also, while they sell durians all year around, prices tend to vary depending on demand so if you want to catch the last parts of the durian season you better head off soon - like tonight!
